    ACM2 - The Second Cumming

    Well, it's been a long year (and hard, now it's time for the All Cummers Meat 2. Last year was a blast as we had 40+ Washingtonians and Oregonians joined us in our excellent trail complex know as WhyPass. We've got the brush trimmed back and she's smooth and ready for action. Plus a couple new tantilizing additions to tire ya out and make you beg for more sweet single track!

    January 21st 2006, 10am at the Lorane Country Cafe, see below.

    "The Disciples of Dirt invite you to join them for their annual All Comer's Meat in their secret singletrack sanctuary known as Whypass. Bring your knobbiest knobbies and be sure to fender your sled for this relaxed-paced event. Plan on about 15 miles of mucky singletrack including ~2500' of climbing. Meet at 10am at the Lorane Country Cafe (the cafe is closed but the parking lot still makes a good place to meet). Find the cafe 1/2 mile north of the town of Lorane on Territorial Highway. Directions: From Eugene, take West 11th Ave. to Bertelsen Rd. There’s a traffic light at the intersection of W. 11th and Bertelsen in west Eugene. Turn south onto Bertelsen and reset your odometer to zero as you do so. Even though you’ll make no turns off this road for about twelve and a half miles, the road’s name will change from Bertelsen to Bailey Hill to Lorane Hwy. Don’t worry about it, just keep driving and make no turns. At 12.6 miles you come to Gillespie Corners. This is where Lorane Hwy. T-bones into Territorial Hwy. Turn left onto Territorial Hwy. (follow signs directing you toward the town of Lorane.) At 17.2 miles, turn right into the Lorane Country Cafe parking lot.

    Notation: A portion of Lou's invitaion/description above is a cut-'n-paste from last year's event promo. FYI the hard working & fun loving members of The Disciples of Dirt have added a couple new trails since last year! There's even more sweet, sloppy, mucky, giggle-a-minute singletrack to ride now!

    Y'all come!

    If you have the fork clearance Sparty likes the Fire FR 2.4 on the front.

    Basically deep open treads work well.

    we have been having good luck with a couple TimberWolf's on, 2.3 rear and 2.5 front. Great traction, I think I like them better than the narrow tires.

    That is what I would love to run. No $ for new tread, so I was thinking about the older veloci 1.95's F/R combo. I have them as my "mud" tires as advised by red-haze when I first moved here. They seem to work pretty well. Like you guys, with a rigid rig, the thought of running "skinny" (2.1 or narrower in my book) gives me the chills. However Shiggy, I do have a Panaracer 2.4 FR that could be put up front. Won't fit in the rear. May run the 2.4 up front and the 1.95 veloci in the rear. Cheers!

    Yeah! Jeez, I forgot about that tire because it's on my Vulture, which I have not ridden in months. And I have a terrible memory. At least I think I have a terrible memory... I can't remember for sure. But anyway I do prefer fat, low-pressure tires with big, tall knobs in the mud. Front or rear.

    That much I do remember.

    Hope the information store was backed up proper like. What are you guys doing for IT? Give me a call if you feel the need. It's been a few years but I may be able to help.

    I forgot I even owned some old velociraptors...might have to dig 'em out.

    Smudge,

    Looks like there is a hiatus from about 10 am on Friday till sometime Sunday with emails. Details. I am so low on the totem poll, I receive only personal emails. Oops, did I say that out loud?

    Those tires should work.

    Cheers!

    There'll be a couple of us from Ryders Bikes in Hillsboro coming down too, pretty pumped to check out some parts of the state that aren't giant mud pits and are actually rideable.
